Colin Cowie's elegant table setting

3 of 10
Even when Colin's eating alone, he believes the key to living well is to pamper yourself. "I'm not the type of person who would ever lean over a kitchen sink and eat tuna out of a can," he says. "That's not my movie."

Colin sets a beautiful table—complete with cloth napkins and coordinated dinnerware—for his intimate dinner for one. "It's a form of my meditation," he says. "I get to spend a bit of time on my own recharging my batteries. But of course, the more the merrier."

When it comes to drinks, Colin also has a special system. Whenever he gets a bottle of wine from someone, he writes their name on the bottle. Then, when he drinks the wine, he either sends them a thank you note the next day, or at minimum, raises a toast to them.
